2015-W American Silver Eagle Proof

2015-W American Silver Eagle Proof

Late last month, the U.S. Mint published their price changes for collector coins, lowering prices from last year. The changes largely reflects the lower cost of silver versus last year.

Although the price of silver is up from the beginning of the year ($15.71 on January 2 to $17.22 on February 2), the price is down from the $19.94 on January 2, 2014. Silver climbed as high as $22.05 on February 24, 2014 to as low as $15.28 on November 6, 2014. Silver prices have been on a steady climb this year with a recent peak of $18.23 on January 23, 2015.

I attach no meaning to these number except that it has allowed the U.S. Mint to lower the price of silver coins.

The changes that were announced are as follows:

Product 2015 Retail price
American Eagle One Ounce Silver Proof Coin $ 48.95
American Eagle One Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin 39.95
Congratulations Set 50.95
United States Mint Proof Set® 32.95
United States Mint Uncirculated Set® 28.95
America the Beautiful Quarters Circulating Coin Set™ 7.95
Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set 46.95
America the Beautiful Five- Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin™ (5 issues) 149.95

This year, the U.S. Mint has started selling the 2015-W American Silver Eagle Proof collectors coin earlier than in previous years. In fact, I have already received my coin.
